Approaching 11,000 comments

humphrey Since we are exactly 20 comments away from the 11,000 mark, the person who posts the 20th comment on this blog wins a prize!

Maybe two prizes!

Maybe ... three prizes!

So that you're not randomly commenting about sweet nothings, here is something to talk about:

What is the best movie line involving beer/liquor?

As always, I won't post any comments until we hit No. 20. That way everybody gets a fair shot.

Billy: Maybe later

Billy: What about you Sideburns? You want some of this milk?

Janitor: I'd rather have a beer

Fat, Drunk, and Stupid is no way to go through life

From the Three Amigos - "We don't have beer. Just tequila. - What's tequila? - Uh, it's like beer." Sadly, this has gotten me into trouble..thinking tequila is just like beer.

Clint: I only came here to do two things, kick some ass and drink some beer.

Clint: Looks like we're almost outta beer.

Dazed and Confused

Candy is Dandy but Liquor is Quicker..

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

My advice to you is to start drinking heavily

Mrs. Kramer, Mitch's Mother: Have you been drinking?
Mitch: No
[falls on bed and can't even take off both boots]
Mrs. Kramer, Mitch's Mother: Are you drunk?
Mitch: [clearly drunk] Psshh

Sorry.. I know it's not beer/liquor, but it's a great scene:

"I am NOT drinking any f**king merlot!"

-Miles Raymond / Sideways

Animal House -

Pinto: I was thinking, maybe we could get some beer.

Clorette De Pasto: Nah, not tonight. Besides, you might get lucky without it.

All right, brain, I don't like you and you don't like me - so let's just do this and I'll get back to killing you with beer.

-Homer Simpson

Dean Vernon Wormer: Zero point two... Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son

All right, brain, I don't like you and you don't like me - so let's just do this and I'll get back to killing you with beer.

From Cocktail, a cinematic treasure:

Last Barman Poet

I am the last barman poet.
I see America drinking the fabulous cocktails I make.
Americans getting stinky on something I stir or shake.
The sex on the beach, the schnapps made from peach,
The Velvet Hammer,
the Al-La-Bam-A Slam-a!


I make things with juice and froth: the Pink Squirrel, the 3-Toed Sloth. I make drinks so sweet and snazzy:
The Iced Tea, The Kamikaze, The Orgasm, The Death Spasm,
The Singapore Sling, The Dingaling.

America you've just been devoted to every flavor I got.
But if you want to got loaded,
why don't you just order a shot?
Bar is open.

Does it have to be a movie? How about TV?

"All right, brain, I don't like you and you don't like me - so let's just do this and I'll get back to killing you with beer."
-Homer Simpson

If it's gotta be a movie, I always liked this quote from Sideways:

Jack: If they want to drink Merlot, we're drinking Merlot.
Miles Raymond: No, if anyone orders Merlot, I'm leaving. I am NOT drinking any f***ing Merlot!

Barfly: "To all my friends!"

The problem with the world is that everyone is a few drinks behind. - Humphrey Bogart

Beer: The cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems. -- Homer Simpson (not quite a movie, but still noteworthy!)

Heineken?

---- that ----.

Pabst Blue Ribbon!

I'm here to kick ass and chew bubblegum (infused vodka). And I'm all out of bubblegum (infused vodka)

Fill it up again! Fill it up again! Once it hits your lips, it's so good!

I wish it were winter so we could freeze it into ice blocks and skate on it and melt it in the spring time and drink it!

Drifter: Beer, and a bottle.
Bartender: Anything else?
Drifter: Just a quiet hour to drink it.
High Plains Drifter

Winning comment!

Beer goes very good with beer. More beer!

Orson Welles once told of going to the Brown Derby and finding Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman at another table going over their contract trying to find away to get out "Everyone Goes to Rick's" (the original title of "Casablanca") because they were going crazy trying to act in a movie where they were their script pages each day of the shoot with no idea how the movie was supposed to end.

Busy, aren't we?
I keep getting errors when I submit.

"Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker"
I'm cheating just so I can comment. It's from a poem from Ogden Nash not from a movie.

The Weird Science scene at Wyatt's party between Max and the bartender:

Max: Hey, brother! What's happening,
my main man? (pause, no response) Right on! Scotch.

Straight up?

Eh, give me the whole bottle.

Tell you what, you bend over, and I'll shove it straight up your ass.

On the rocks is fine.

Ha ha ha ha! Yeah, that's what I thought you'd say.

You know how I feel about my grandmother but I'd sell her for a drink.
-Frank Sinatra, "High Society"

"Here's to the first of the day fellas...to ol' DH Lawrence..."
